If your establishment is part of a group, you cannot nominate any staff members or establishments within the wider group.
Please NB: Employers/Managers can nominate their employees in the Emerging Front of House and Emerging Chef categories. You will be asked to provide information relating to this person and their role within your establishment on the nomination form.

The Felix Wellington Hospitality Awards nominations are open to all members of the industry, whether you are a member of the Restaurant Association or not.
